Prepare your tongue for a baptism of fire as The Goods Line in Ultimo transforms into a pyro-powered al fresco food court as part of Vivid's mouthwatering food program. Until Saturday, June 15, hungry Sydneysiders can feast on all manner of flame-kissed dishes from around the world, produced by a scorching-hot lineup of local eateries and acclaimed chefs.

Third-generation LA-based pitmaster Shalamar Lane is showcasing her singular approach to barbecue alongside Australian-born, Texas-based smokehouse legend Jess Pryles, with homegrown talents like First Nations chef and restaurateur Mindy Woods and Lennox Hastie, the culinary visionary behind award-winning restaurant Firedoor, also bringing the heat.

Cultures around the globe have harnessed the power of the flame in an array of delicious ways, many of which can be found on display. From the tandoor to teppanyaki, and charcoal to hickory smoke, diners can taste their way through a diverse menu of international cuisines from the likes of Brazilian Flame, Eat Lebanese, Smoky Sue, Don't Tell Aunty and S'Mores to name only a handful.

And it's not merely your tastebuds that'll be licking the flame. You can set your curiosity alight at one of the live cooking demonstrations, where leading chefs share the tricks of their trade, revealing fascinating techniques for perfectly charred results. There's also flaming sculptures and firepits dotted throughout The Goods Line, to keep visitors both toasty and entertained.
